The ICD code E66 is used to code Childhood obesity
Childhood obesity is a condition where excess body fat negatively affects a child's health or well-being. As methods to determine body fat directly are difficult, the diagnosis of obesity is often based on BMI.

The term overweight rather than obese is often used in children as it is less stigmatizing.
